New York City Opera: Moses in Egypt - New York City Center
Through April 20, 2013 -

Moses in Egypt, Gioachino Rossini's rarely heard, large-scale bel canto opera, has a libretto by Andrea Leone Tottola and music that places Rossini directly in the lineage of Mozart. Although the Italian composer revised Moses in Egypt several times, this new production presents his original version and is the opera's first full NYC staging of the original version in more than 180 years. It will be directed and designed by Michael Counts.

TTK's '1Plus1Plus1' Art Show Feat. Music by TJ Mizell - White Rabbit
Through April 30, 2013 - New York

Fresh off the heels of his feature slot in the Ricky Powell Fall Classic Group Art Show, painter, record collector and Polo bon vivant TTK returns to White Rabbit with a team of visual artists he assembled to bring their artistic vision to the gallery. The opening ceremony for the show, titled 1Plus1Plus1 is on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, 7PM-1AM at White Rabbit, 145 E. Houston St. between Forsyth & Eldridge. Just added to the bill as minister of sound is DJ TJ Mizell, the son of Run DMC's very own Jam Master Jay. "I'm really excited they asked me to DJ for this show. The artists are so talented and my sound totally goes with their vibe. It's going to be a crazy night," TJ said.

Presented by 2'12" and ChevonMedia, the 1Plus1Plus1 gallery show will feature KlashWon, a Brooklyn based artist who combines everyday life experience with iconic cultural figures, Sam Woolley, whose work explores the dark underbelly of fame and family and TTK, a jaunty, curatorial force whose surreal, colorful paintings bend reality to the will of an active imagination. The show will run throughout April with shirts, prints and other merchandise also available for purchase. White Rabbit is a Lower East Side gallery space in New York City, complete with a full bar and kitchen, serving Latin and Asian small plates nightly. The opening begins at 7:00 P.M. with conversations about the paintings and will turn into a musical celebration of the artists and their work as the night progresses. Guests can RSVP to ArtByTTK@gmail.com. About TTK - TTK is a Brooklyn based artist with an international audience from California to South Korea. He is known to infuse social concerns, his favorite pop icons, fashion, sports and music into his work. TTK's custom art clients include recording artists Dwele, Natalie of Floetry, as well as special projects for Cornell University, Hot 97 and Timberland.

The Midnight Moment - Times Square
Through April 30, 2013 - New York

A spectacular visual and inspirational message will greet New Yorkers and visitors to the Crossroads of the World this April as part of a synchronized program on fifteen of the largest digital screens in Times Square. “The Power of Words,” a new short film compilation of Nelson Mandela’s words, pays tribute to the peaceful vision of the South African leader on the occasion of his upcoming 95th birthday and was created especially for the Times Square screens. Throughout April, the film will air from 11:57 pm – midnight as part of the Midnight Moment: A Digital Gallery, a presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts in collaboration with the Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) and Nelson Mandela Foundation. The showing also coincides with National Poetry Month. The words of Nelson Mandela – made up of text edited from numerous speeches – will collide, float, pour and burst onto the screens through a dramatic, cosmic blue background in the collaborative work, created by Nabil Elderkin, Andrew van der Westhuyzen and Gregory Stern., “The Power of Words” project, sponsored by Montblanc, was created in response to a challenge by the Nelson Mandela Foundation and TFI to inspire filmmakers to create short films that highlight the enduring impact of words and the resonance of Mandela’s message through multiple eras and generations. This public video piece was created by one of the directors, Nabil Elderkin, in collaboration with animator Andrew Van Der Westhuyze, to help bring greater public awareness to the initiative, which will continue later this year with four additional filmmakers, who will work with TFI and Out of Africa Entertainment to create original short films based on quotes from Mandela’s teachings that will be released throughout the year. To help further spread the teachings of Mandela, TFI will spearhead the creation of an additional online video that will allow viewers around the world to have a virtual experience of “The Power of Words” public video piece beyond its run in Times Square.
